    He should have a thread, as we analyze his play for the foreseeable future and talk shop about Rob O'Gara.

    He's a plug. Call up Bigras.

    Another prayer at D aka ADA Gilmour Pionk

    Plan (aka Prayer) is that one of them will actually amount to something

    Nothing to lose at this point

    Kampfer is better. That's a pretty good summary of my feelings on the player.

    They rather have Holden

    That’s all one needs to know

    If he can turn in to a nice #7 he's a good guy to keep around. It was proven this year that most teams need about 10 NHL defensemen in a season. Kampfer is signed for another year. Sign O'Gara to a 2-year extension in the off-season. There's 2 of your 10. Neither guy should be an everyday player (barring a significant improvement) but depth is still needed

    Having him paired with Staal is moronic. I feel like he'd be fine with someone a bit faster. Having two slow, lumbering guys out there makes zero sense.

    But AV.

    I haven't been impressed. Losses his checks often.

    He's struggling with the system, but also losing his man. Lets see if he can turn it around.

    I’m down on his turning ability. I think his straight ahead speed is fine, but he isn’t very good at turning his body, even to the point of looking stiff out there, which is rare.

    I'm willing to give him more time because we know how long it takes new D to adjust to AV's system but based off of what I've seen, he looks like a second Marc Staal.

    Great for the tank, bad for winning games.

    Meh. I don't see him having a future in the NYR. The trade was mainly to get the draft pick.

    He's fine for the tank. But really there aren't many other options right now. Recall Smith? I think the Rangers have decided he will not be back this year. We've just gotten Bigras. There's Sproul. They'd probably be better but don't get your hopes up too high. There's Pedrie. Crawley's hurt I suspect. He hasn't been playing. And then Zborovskiy toiling away in the ECHL and apparently he's got some serious skating issues. Those are the other options.

    It can be atrocious to watch but there is a silver lining here. The Sedin's tomorrow should pick our D apart from top to bottom. Vancouver passes us. Edmonton passes us. Montreal passes us. Maybe even Ottawa if we're real lucky. What if at the end of the season we're sitting at No. 3. The No. 3 team has a 31.2% chance of drafting Dahlin. Eyes on the prize everybody.

    I refuse to evaluate anyone given the current state of the roster and that AV is still around.

    He's just another warm body, IMO. There's no need getting worked up over him because he'll be gone in 20 games.

    The entire reason why I advocate for firing him now. How honest can your late season evaluations possibly be with him still there?

    Otherwise, I would say let him stay until April.

    I mean he obviously doesn't look great, but I don't think it's a huge leap from where he is to serviceable 6/7. Particularly if he's in a system that doesn't emphasize man coverage. I have no real hopes for him but will not judge him on what I see the remainder of the season. Honestly I'd be more inclined to evaluate him in Hartford.

    I normally give players a chance, but he is an absolute pylon.
